Matthew 22:21 “Give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s…”
We also read in Matthew 6:24 that we cannot serve two masters at once; you cannot servant God and the devil.
God will not compromise His Word and will not have any fellowship with the deeds of the devil. Satan on the contrary will take anything you offer him. He will go to any length to get you in a place where your relationship with God is broken or weak or non-existent. Satan will go to any length to create havoc and destruction in your life and make you blame God for it.
Jesus told His disciples that He and the Father were one (John 10:30 and John 17:21,22). My dear friends, this is the key to Christianity…be one with the Father. Unity with God is the ultimate goal of every believer on this planet. We read in John 3:34 that because there was a perfect unity between them, God poured His Spirit on Jesus WITHOUT MEASURE…wow how would you like to have the Holy Spirit in your without measure? That is something to shoot for isn’t it?
The question is: how do I reach this kind of unity? Well I glad you ask… the first goal is to know God. I cannot have any kind of relationship without knowing whom I am speaking to. And I am sorry to say but the ONLY WAY to know God is by reading His Word….the Bible.
The Bible is not a book filled with wonderful stories, no! the Bible shows us God’s attributes, character and integrity. If you had a TV talk show and you had Him there, He would say exactly what His Word says…that is why it is called Testament. The Bible is God’s will for mankind.
I cannot emphasize it enough; if you want to know God, read His Word. 2014 is the year for you to know Him through the written Word.
2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God; and it is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and for instruction in righteousness.”
